Consumer groups slam mooted Motor Tax increases
The expected rise in motor tax in the upcoming budget has been slammed as regressive by consumer groups.
It's believed that the Finance Minister will slap a 10 percent increase on motor tax for people with engines over three litres.
This will amount to a rise of 150 euro in their yearly motor tax.
It's thought Brian Cowen is being forced to take the step to pay for modest income tax reliefs in the budget.
